    The new 'project binky' episode was about steering this week, of you haven't already seen it. Might have some relevance but if not its a great watch if you haven't already seen it

    If anyone knows how to fabricate a "skyhook" they do. There's a lot of doing and re-doing going on and it's all a bit of a laugh in some ways, diligent in others. Great skills though, there's a lot to learn.

    Gurds, me luverly sSon.

    I am in the UK for a couple of weeks, but when I get back to Eire I will send you my Mk2 VWMS type uprights, Audi 80 modded hubs(4 x 100) and Passat brgs.
    Might take a couple of weeks?

    Can't supply the Audi CVs as mine are re-built and might not br good enough for track use!
    So. You will have to buy Audi 80 Cvs made by GKN/Lobro.

    WE will get there!

    aDa.

    Skyhooks are a tradesman joke in Australia. Hence the band Skyhooks as the lead singer was a carpenter. It's a tradesman's response to people wanting objects to be fixed in mid air with no structural support hence the sarcastic joke...

    I like that. Widetrack, negative camber and positive caster all in one easy to bolt on piece without having to modify the wishbone.

    Clever thinking. :thumbup:

    It appears to increase track slightly, but I don`t see what else that solution brings. :thumbd:
